I am a faculty member in statistics, and Director of the Program in Statistics, in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Boston University.

My current research interests revolve mainly around the statistical analysis of network-indexed data, with particular focus on both foundational issues and statistical problems related to the monitoring of computer network traffic data and the modeling and analysis of data relating to biological networks. My previous research was concerned with the development of statistical multi-scale models, with applications in areas including astronomy, computer science, geography, and remote sensing.
